Massage is a methodical manual application of pressure and movement of the soft tissues of the body including skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia (the membrane surrounding muscle and muscle groups). Deep muscle massage breaks up adhesions between muscle groups and restores them back to their original length through stretching. It also relieves tension, stimulates nerves, and promotes the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids.
